Member Committee Application Package
AIESEC Czech Republic
„Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.” Peter Drucker
Dear applicants for Member Committee of AIESEC in the Czech Republic 2013/2014, To apply for the MC might not be the simplest thing in your life, but certainly it is the simplest thing in the MC journey. To apply for the MC in the strong and performing entity as AIESEC in the Czech Republic needs good vision to know, where do you go, good strategy and skills to know, how to go, and eagerness to make the things happen. Being part of the MC is bringing you challenges every day, every day you have the opportunity to become even better leader. Being in MC for almost 2 years I sacrificed a lot, but on the other hand I learned much more in reward and I can always say – no matter if the day is sunny or sad – that this experience was every time worth it. Having also professional experiences out of AIESEC I honestly have to say that I lived during these 2 years the time of my life! You can do the job, which you can do in corporation only after long time climbing up the ladder. The MC experience is one of the best experiences AIESEC can offer you. “Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer.” Marcia Wieder If you have a dream, there is no better way than just to go for it. Go for your dreams… Yours,
